When my brother tried these after I made them he said he would get up in the middle of the night to sneak some. ;) They sure were gone too, so think all m brothers took more than their share. ;)

I made these last week for Open Doors Ontario at our little county Church. They were a real hit and lots asked for the receipe. Easy and a really good soft cookie

Great flavor. Soft, mild, sweet. Comforting. Makes me think of something my Aunt would make. And I agree, great with tea!
